Threaded bolt??

Hey fellas,

Where could I get a couple of threaded aluminum bolts that is the same thread pitch and size for the studs that hold the engine cylinders to the case?

I need this just to fill in the holes, and then cut them off flush, then redrill the KH cylinders base mounting studs, using a gasket as a template?

Thanks.

George

You could get a 3 foot length of 3/8-16 Aluminum Threaded Rod from Amazon.com through MSC and they probably ship to Germany. cut what you need and save the rest for another endeavor.

My Dad made mine years ago before I got my own lathe. Put a screwdriver slot in the end, then turned it down to 3/8" and cut the threads. That way I had a way to easily thread it in tight, then cut it off flush.

Well.

I just got a piece of 7075T6 round bar .500 dia, 6" long,

Turned about 2" down to .375 on my lathe, then my trusty Craftsman tap & die set came home from work yesterday and I got it threaded,...

More work to do
